Sherre has performed as an improvising vocalist, and as a performance artist weaving stories––from Sydney Opera House to tent shows in the Australian outback. She’s currently developing performative work based in the act of listening, to work with others in daily life. She’s created Sound Designs for Sydney Theatre Company productions directed by Cate Blanchett & Andrew Upton, music for dance by choreographer/dancer Paul Matteson and others, and her work has served as the basis of a piece by contemporary Australian ensemble Topology.

“And such is the intense and spellbinding power of the work of Sherre DeLys, whose work is stunning in bringing out a sense of what musicality of voice is and, unexpectedly, can be.”

— Norie Neumark, Voice Studies: Routledge 2016

In the 1980’s she was a founding member of Mind|Body|Split, a group of improvising musicians using pirated and found texts, electronics, tapes and instrumental sounds in ephemeral organisation.

“A supergroup of local experimental musicians”
